save a fortune on batteries for solarsetup
many folk are going to solar power yet finding the expense of the lithium batteries offputting at the very least
here is a way with breakdown of costs over twenty [20] years to save a fortune on batteries and reduce the solar setup costs
12v leadacid and gel batteries can also be purchased for a fraction of the price of lithium and most folk do not know they can go to vehicle breaker yards also known as scrap yards and get vehicle batteries for a fraction of the cost of a new battery
and you may also save costs on other things such as cables and connectors switches lights fuses and more plus there could be other things and bargains to help save money for your homestead or mobilehome andsuch
for example
where i live i can get secondhand 12v vehicle batteries anywhere from £10 ~ £40 each whereas one [1] new leadacid battery starts at around £90 for a 60ah ~ 70ah wheres the higher the [ah] the higher the price
thereby if you purchase secondhand 12v vehicle batteries you would be saving them going in the landfill and saving lots of money
and
looking at the high and low price scale for 12v secondhand vehicle batteries
lets calculate costs for a single battery
if secondhand only last five [5] years you can weigh them in get a few bob back or could likely do a swap for a good secondhand battery from the breakers yards or scrap yards or even secondhand vehicle dealers
£40 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £160 v £4,000 a massive saving of £3,840
£10 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £40 v £4,000 a massive saving of £3,960
the batteries may last longer as i have seen some folk that claim they are still using their 12v vehicle leadacid batteries nine [9] years on
£40 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £80 v £2,000 a massive saving of £1,920
£10 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £20 v £2,000 a massive saving of £1,980
lets calculate costs for a batterybank of ten [10] batteries
£40 10x is equal to £400 v £10,000 a massive saving of £9,600
£10 10x is equal to £100 v £10,000 a massive saving of £9,900
£400 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £1,600 v £40,000 a massive saving of £38,400
£100 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £400 v £40,000 a massive saving of £39,600
£400 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £800 v £20,000 a massive saving of £19,200
£100 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £200 v £20,000 a massive saving of £19,800
lest calculate a new lower end leadacid 60ah ~ 70ah battery at an average £90 each
£90 is equal to £1,000 a massive saving of £910
£90 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £360 v £4,000 a massive saving of £3,640
£90 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £180 v £2,000 a massive saving of £1,820
lest calculate a new lower end [ah] leadacid 60ah ~ 70ah battery at an average £90 each for a battery bank of ten [10]
£90 10x is equal to £900 v £10,000 a massive saving of £9,100
£900 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £3,600 v £40,000 a massive saving of £36,400
£900 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £1,800 v £20,000 a massive saving of £18,200
lets calculate a 240ah new leisure battery at average price of £390
£390 is equal to £390 v £1,000 a massive saving of £610
£390 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £1,560 v £4,000 a massive saving of £2,440
£390 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £780 v £2,000 a massive saving of £1,220
lets calculate a 240ah new leisure battery at average price of £390 for a battery bank of ten [10]
£3,900 is equal to £3,900 v £10,000 a massive saving of £6,100
£3,900 4x over twenty [20] years is equal to £15,600 v £40,000 a massive saving of £24,400
£3,900 2x over twenty [20] years is equal to £7,800 v £20,000 a massive saving of £12,200
the costs will vary for area to area country to country thus this is only a guide based on my sources and first hand knowledge
also cheaper quicker more environmentally friendly to replace for most and makes connections with those in breakers yards or scrap yards or even secondhand vehicle dealers
for those in remote areas you may be able to purchase online on places like ebay and have them shipped to you
open for discussion
does this make sense to you or do you have a different point of view…??
p.s
if my calculations are off please correct me as i am not good with math
